It's been a very busy few weeks. The Bernardo Winery Spring Art & Craft Show was a big success. I met lots of people excited about photography and had a financially successful show as well. The week before I was in southern Utah and a visit to the Wave in Coyote Buttes North. Although the hike was a little more demanding than I had originally thought it would be, it was a great experience. One I'm sure I'll repeat again sometime. My only wish would have been to have some cloudy skies. Even though we got an early start, we still arrived with clear skies and harsh sunlight. Some areas provided shadow which produced the best images. Visitation to this area of the Paria Canyon wilderness is restricted by the BLM to only 10 online lottery winners and 10 day-before walk-in lottery applicants. I had won my permit online back in February. On my designated day, there were 83 lottery applications for the 10 walk-in spots. What's next? I'm teaching a Landscape & Nature Photography Class at the Escondido Municipal Gallery on June 2nd. You can sign up here: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/250095 if you're interested.
